Trading Places at the V&A
Trading Places, which ran at the Sackler Centre for Arts Education at the V&A from 19 April to 25 May 2010, marked ten years of the DBA Inclusive Design Challenge at the RCA (2000-2010).
The title refers to the unique process behind the Challenge model, which has seen 500 professional designers from 41 DBA member firms 'trade places' with older and disabled people in order to find new ways to design more inclusively.
A creative industries night was held at the Sackler Centre on 27 April in partnership with the DBA and V&A to celebrate the show. A special supplement was published in Design Week on 22 April to tie in with the event.
The Trading Places exhibition will then travel to Boston's Institute for Human-Centred Design in autumn 2010 for a showing before an American audience.
